Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I tried to remove the headlight switch. I checked on this thread how to do it

It says that we have to pull out theknob to turn on the lightS....but nothing came out... It stays in place. I don't want to break it :scared:

 

Any tips for me?

Kevin, if you reach under the dash & find the headlight switch feel the switch there is a smsll button on the switch you have to press the button fully & then pull out the knob forthe headlights & it should come all the way out. If it only come out part way, release the button & press it again & pull the knob, it should come out. Then you could remove the etainer which unscrews that holds the switch in the dash.

Mike.

Yes, it is a reach but it can be done. MY steering wheel was off and that prob made it a little easier to get at. Are you replacing it? I read reviews on the parts store replacement made by Standard Motor parts (retail <$20). A few said they had problems getting the shaft back in. I had a little problem there but nothing that a little brute force couldnt help me overcome. I think the most common thing that gets flaky on these is the rheostat dimmer.
